On Wednesday, all looked fine for Antonio Brown. The Steelers wideout had practiced fully on Tuesday, so the calf injury that sidelined him the last two games of the season appeared to be behind him. But two days later, Brown is questionable for Sunday's playoff game -- a game-time decision.
Maybe he had a setback with the injury, or maybe it wasn't fully behind him. There also appears to be an illness issue. Whatever the case, he appears to be legitimately questionable. That's today's news.
The tricky part is it's the third of four games this weekend, so if you're hoping to use Brown, and he winds up not playing, you're limited on your selections to replace him.
It's possible the story is a little overblown; the Steelers heightening the drama or playing mind games. Seems very unlikely that Brown won't be available.
But it's a story to keep an eye on between now and Sunday, and line up a backup plan. Perhaps another Steelers wideout (certainly JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant would see more targets), or a Jaguar, or somebody in the weekend's last game (Saints-Vikings).
Hopefully we'll have more clarity by tomorrow. But right now, looks a little risky to count on Brown being fully healthy.
